It’s that time of year when coaching staffs around the league are being filled out and as usual, the names of Green Bay Packers assistants are coming up. One of those is quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo.
McAdoo, surprisingly, will get a shot to go right to the top. He’s going to interview for the Cleveland Browns head coaching position.

That’s quite a leap for McAdoo, who’s never served as a coordinator in the NFL. Prior to becoming the Packers quarterbacks coach in 2012, McAdoo spent six seasons as the team’s tight ends coach.
The Browns axed former coach Rob Chudzinski after just one season on the job.
McAdoo is also believed to be a candidate for the offensive coordinator position in Miami. Coach Joe Philbin, who used to be the Packers offensive coordinator, fired Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman this week.
We have a tough time seeing McAdoo landing the Browns top job, but his tenure in Green Bay is more than likely over.
